Heartland Youth Rugby was formed to promote the growth and development of youth, through the sport of rugby. Our goal is to help them develop the positive life lessons of physical fitness, teamwork and leadership, while learning the game of rugby. In addition, we want to increase the number of youth rugby players, and decrease the age of first-time participants.
Over the next few years, our plan is to develop more youth rugby players through various camps, clinics and academies. We also intend to promote the inclusion of Rookie Rugby into the P.E. curriculums of elementary and middle-school programs. All of this will lead to the formation of both non-contact and contact leagues, which will provide a competition structure for youth rugby in the Kansas City area.
